Rudolph Spreckols of San Fron
cisco by hia attorney in fact, Al
fred S. Hartwell, has brought a
bill for injunction against the Pa
auhau Plantation Company. Tho
complaint recites as follows in
That tho plaintiff is tho owuor
of five thousand shares, being ono
half of tho capital stock of said
That ClauB Spreckols, vice-president
of said company, has ro
contly brought suit against tho
plaintiff in a. California court,
Mrs. Spreckols joining as1 co
plaintiff thoroin, to obtain an
annulment of an alleged gift mado
by him to tho plaintiffof said
Bhares, and that an injunction
against tho plaintiff restraining
dividends thoroon which was ob
tained in said suit has since beon
That the said company has re
cently authorized a dividend of
one dollar a sharo monthly on tho
capital stock, tho first of such
dividends being payable at Hono
lulu on or about February 3 cur
rent. That tho plaintiff has in writing
demanded of tho directors to bo
paid dividends on his slmros,
aud that tlio dirocturH havo refused
to pay Bhch dividends on nccountof
a protest and warning from Claus
Spreckols, and that meanwhile tho
dfvidonds payablo on such slmros
will bo placed in tho bank of Clans
Sprockets & Co. for tho bonolit of
whom it may coucorn.
The plaintiff contends that tho
refusal to pay him tho dividonds,
unless ho furnish a bond of in
demnity as dictated by Claus
Spreckols, is unauthorized by law
or by tho charter and bylaws of
tho company, and tho retention of
any dividends is a broach of trust
on tho port of tho corporation and
It is assorted that tho withhold
ing of the dividends materially
affects tho valuo of tho stock for
purposes of saloj and will materi
ally interfere with tho plaintiff's
exercise of his rights to Bell tho
shares, and tho resulting loss and
injury would bo irreparable
unless ho shall bo granted the
roliof prayed for.
Whoreforo tho plaintiff prays,
in part that tho dofondant corpo
ration bo declared to bo a trusteo
to tho plaintiff of all dividends
payable in respect of said shares,
and bo ordered and required to
pay tho same to tho plaintiff un
conditionally and without dolay
whoroby any discrimination bo
made between tho plaintiff and
othor shareholders; also that tho
dofondant bo restrained from pay
ing any of said dividonds into tho
bank of Claus Spreckols & Co.
Service of tho complaint and
summons has boon mado upon

Paauhau Plantation Company.

Ttli:OllY INDICATING AN RAIIIV
Great Ilent Anrny Prom Ilalemnu
niauLecend of an Rxtluct
J. J. Williams, who recontly
roturnedfrom tho volcano, has a
very interesting theory relative to
tho probable future of that great
est of tho wondors of tho world.
Mr. Williams has mado a groat
many trips to Kilauca, soon tho
crator in all its various phases,
quiescont and active, and taken
many views of tho immonso pit, ae
well as having mado a very care
ful study of tho moods
and vagaries of tho mass
of lava which eternally boils and
surges under tho foot of tho tou
rist and Bichtsoor who walks
across the hcavy crust of tho hard
oned flows on his way to viow tho
Ho says that on his last trip up,
after having takou sovorul pictures
of tho presont visibly active por
tion, ho mado a long dotour to tho
loft of Halcmaumau, in company
with Mr. Klino, publisher of tho
Amsterdam (N. Y.) Daily Demo
crat. About a thousand yards
from Hulomaumau tho heat on
tho floor of tho crater beenmo bo
great that further progress in tho
iroction they wero then proceed
ing becamo impossible.
Tho lava is filled with innu
merable cracks and upon shoving
a stick down anyone of them it
takes firo immediately. In a
numbor of places a cigur could
bo lighted merely by placing it
over one of tho small crevices.
From many years' oxperionco in
noting tho changes which are con
stantly takinc place in tho crator,
as well as the careful survey of
presont conditions, Mr. Williams
opinion is that an entiroly now lake
of vast Bizo is forming, iu fact, has
already formed, just below tho
surface of tho main crator, and
that at any moment tho crust may
give way and tho vast body of
fluid lava bonoath become an ad
dition to tho present wohdor, Ha
lomaumau. Many facts rolativo to tho past
eccentric movomonts of tho hidden
sea of molton rock go to Biipport
tho correctness of his theory. This
samo thing has happonod timo and
again during tho past oighty years.
Tlio comparatively fragile crust
of Kilauoa is liablo at any time,
after, of courso,duo warning, which
eliminates all danger to visitors,
to fall in and oxposo tho liquid
fires beneath to view.
Mr. WilliomB boliovos that this
is about to occur over an area ap
proximately 800 to 1000 yards in
diamotor, thus forming a rival to
tho splendors of Halomaumau.
Thoso visitors who aro fortunate
enough to bo upon tho ground at
tho timo, will havo an opportunity
of witnessing a Bight worth trav
eling around tho world to soo.
Tlio writor romombors ojio in
cident in connection with his hist
visit to tho volcano, in May last,
which is portinont in respect to the
new theory. At that timo, just to
tho loft of Halomaumau tho iloor
of tho crator was considerably
healed, so that ono had to piok
his way gingerly over tho rocks
and slabs of lava in ordor to avoid
tho fires which woro, apparently,
juBt bolow tho surface.
Now, according to those gontlo
mon's testimony, tho loft hand
sido of the lake, ns it is approach
ed from tho Volcano Houso, is
considerably cooled, while a thou
sand yards further, a region at
that timo cold and absolutely iroo
of all indication of firo bolow, is
exhibiting all the symptoms of
active lava just beneath.
Mr. Leo, tho manager of tho
Volcano Houso, is most enorgotic
and thorough in his investigations
of existing conditions in all parts
of tho crator and tho Evknino
Bulletin would not bo surprised
if somo vory sensational news
woro recoived during tho next
Thoso phenomena havo led to
tho boliof, amongst a numbor of
the old sottlors and not a few
scientific men that thoro is a con
nection botwoon them, moro or
less broken by partition walls, any
of which, under extreme pres
sure, may give way and lot tho
vaBt volume of melted lava flow
through, to find an outlet at one
of its old haunts.
As an example of tho peculiari
ties of formation in these extinct
craters, the Lyman place in Puna
is most interesting, boino timo,
ages and ages ago, there was an
immonso crator formed about a
milo from tho sea and about threo
miles north of Robert Rycroft's
celebrated coffeo plantation at Po
hoiki. Its diameter is about two
miles, and when active it was in
tho form of a groat amphitheater.
At last, on tho seaward side, it
broke through and, doubtless, tho
larger portion of tho fiery fluid
found its way down to tho ocean.
On tho southeast and west a semi
circle of hills rises to a height of
eight hundred or a thousand feet.
These formed tho othor sidos of
So long ago was this that tho
lapso of years has allowed soil to
accumulate several foot in dopth.
Now, in tho contor of this pioco
of ground, which is tho Lyman
homestead, aro threo smaller cra
ters, each about two hundred feet
deep. Ono is filled with guava
j coo ,r.
a u e: s
bushes, ono contains a handsomo
grovo of stately cocoanut palms,
whilo at tho bottom of tho third is
a beautiful little lake, tho waters
of which, reflecting tho grassy
slopes of tho sides of tho pit, seem
a bright groon in color.
Ono of tho loveliest of the an
cient Hawaiian legends, told to
tho writor by an old native, with
whom a night was spout when
stormbound whilo travoling along
tho rocky coast of Puna, refers to
this little lake. It is to tho effect
that onco, many years ago, a
numbor of natives were bathing
in its cold, clear dopths, when, of
a sudden, thoro was a groat com
motion in tho water, which rose
and foil and boiled-furious man
ner. Terror in a strickon, tho mon
and women fled to tho bank and
olamborod up tho sides to a safo
distance. They watched tho
phenomona for n short time as tho
moonlight glistened over tho per
turbed surface o tho lake, when
ono of thorn, pointing his finger
to a certain spot near by cried:
"Look! Look! Tho gods have
come! Is it Kauo? IsitLono?"
All gazod eagerly at tho place in
dicated, aud from out tho angry
flood thoro arose two beautiful
forms, gigantic in stature and, as
tho old expression has it, "with
kiugliko countenance' Tho
spirits floated gently to tho side
of tho lako and securing somo
loavoB aud twigs from ono of tho
bushes throw thom ono by ono into
tho bosom of the waters, mean whilo
chanting musically rythmical in
cantations to tho god of ocean and
rivor. Vory soon there was per
ceptible a marked subsidence, and
in a few moments tho lako resum
ed its occustomod placidity. Then
tho spirit forms swam out again
into tho contor of tho water and
vory, vory slowly sank from viow.
"My grandfather told mo," said
tho old kanaka, and ho was vory
old, "that tho noxt day mon came
from up tho mountain side and
roportod that Pole was angry aud
that tho night bofore thtro was
much disturbance in Kilutioa aud
